Capillary hemangioma is a common condition but a capillary hemangioma arising from the columella of the nose is rare. Here we report a 24 year old man who presented with a pedunculated swelling in the nasal columella. This was excised. Histopathological examination showed features suggestive of capillary hemangioma, the case was presented here due to rare occurrence in the nasal columella. Patients present with epistaxis and cosmetic alterations. Wide excision and cauterization of the base gives excellent results.

Keywords:  Columella, capillary hemangioma.
